Brian Doyle had been to the Eastern Sports and Outdoors Show in Harrisburg, Pa., as a consumer, but the Pasadena resident was looking forward to this year's event for a different reason. Doyle and Ken Kerschner of Centreville were going for the first time as the partners in a new venture, Hammer Hollow Outfitters, booking guided hunts on Maryland's Eastern Shore. But Doyle, Kerschner and the more than 1,200 other vendors who were expecting to drum up business during the nine-day show considered to be the largest for the hunting community in North America will now have to look elsewhere.

Samuel J. English III, a former WBAL-TV staff announcer and weather forecaster who later held broadcasting positions at Maryland Public Television and Towson University, died Sunday of respiratory failure at his Pikesville home.

HARRISBURG, Pa. -- The game was only a few minutes old when the Spirit began to form the impression it wasn't going to be a good night.Of course, it seldom is in this town.But injuries made the prospect of victory even gloomier. No. 1 goalie Cris Vaccaro was out with a strained back, second-leading scorer Jon Parry was limited by a tender ankle to an assist and leading scorer Kevin Sloan suffered a possible broken toe early in the first quarter and sat out the rest of the game.Result? The Spirit lost to the Harrisburg Heat, 21-10, last night before 4,663 at the State Farm Show Arena.

Growing up, Terrence Turner-Blair wasn't like the other kids. While others wanted to be the next Kobe Bryant or Peyton Manning, he wanted to be the next Barry Bonds or Ken Griffey Jr. At this weekend's Big 26 Baseball Classic in Harrisburg, Pa., Turner-Blair again won't be like the other kids. Sure, the 52 high school baseball players from Maryland and Pennsylvania taking the field for the three-game series are all pursuing baseball careers. But Turner-Blair (Northwestern) is the only participant from Baltimore.

Chen struck out three and walked none while throwing 89 pitches, 55 of them strikes.

Despite the success of left-hander Wei-Yin Chen's rehab start at Double-A Bowie on Saturday night, Orioles manager Buck Showalter said the organization is still deciding whether or not he needs another rehab start before rejoining the team. Chen allowed four runs in five innings in a 6-4 Bowie win and showed minimal rust after not pitching in game action since May 12. At one point, he retired seven straight Harrisburg Senators, including Washington Nationals left fielder Bryce Harper.

On a cold November day in 1865, hundreds of United States Colored Troops who had served during the Civil War marched proudly in uniform through the streets of Harrisburg, Pa. The procession formed downtown near the state Capitol, winding its way to the mansion of a local abolitionist. There, the war heroes were praised for their service to the nation. The Pennsylvania Grand Review, the only event of its kind, attracted black soldiers from more than two dozen states, including Maryland, to celebrate the end of the Civil War. Next weekend, tourism officials hope to draw descendants of the troops, history buffs and travelers to a four-day celebration in Harrisburg.

Erosion along the Chesapeake Bay cliffs in Calvert County has exposed another ancient whale skull, and students from Harrisburg, Pa., were expected to help scientists dig the fossil from the heavy clay sediments. Only a small portion of the back of the skull is visible, said Stephen Godfrey of the Calvert Marine Museum in Solomons. But the Miocene-era fossil is probably 16 million years old, and likely belongs to an extinct family of small whales that swam in what were then Atlantic coastal waters teeming with marine life.
